    Hybrid.. UMA..??

    Advertisement



    Hey guys.. Its been awhile, I've been out of the loop for a while.. switched to the G1 (big mistake.. except for the 3G net.) But now Im back with the 8900 SO I got two quick questions.. I was reading about the hybrid upgrade.. just curious as to the difference between hybrid and a normal upgrade??

    And also, the UMA, is that just a mode like EDGE and GPRS..? or is it a type of download able feature..

    thanks in advance.. and its great to have a bb again!

    It's the .152 OS with radio file from .133. Search the forum, instruction is somewhere here. I think it was mainly to get youtube to work.

    UMA is a connection over wifi. Faster and you can talk while still receiving data.

    I think the hybrid was mainly to get youtube to work. But not everyone has youtube issues. Youtube works fine for me on .133.

    You need to set up your wifi connection from "Manage Connections" (on the home screen). It's like setting up your PC to connect to your wireless router.

    Yeah, we had it Ranx. Just what s4Berry said. I myself had it. It was .133 radio file (for the Youtube issue) and .152 for the connectivity and it was very stable. I've since move to .168 but it did serve it's purpose.
